The rate reflects the senior rate. This Corps park was nice but not quite as nice as others we have stayed at. They haven't upgraded to 50 amps like others have. There are no water hookups at the sites so bring your own water or fill your tank at the many faucets spotted around the park. The park volunteers were great. There is no recycling in the park; shame on you Corps of Engineers. This is the home area of Will Rogers so we enjoyed the the boyhood home and the memorial museum. We would stay here again. We camped at Hawthorn Bluff COE in a Motorhome.

Nice COE park on the lake. Showers were nice with plenty of hot water. Lots of shade, so don't expect to get a satellite TV signal, but my antenna worked for over the air programming. I did have some low signals on my Verizon phone, but my AT&T MiFi worked fine. The dump station is located near the park entrance. The gates close at 10 pm. This is my 2nd year camping at this park and will be back for a 3rd year. We camped at Hawthorn Bluff COE in a Motorhome.

An older COE well shaded park probably made for tenting. Almost all of the sites are set up with tables, fire rings, and BBQs at the back of the site. Most of the sites are very sloped either to the front or the back of the site. Some sites are so bad that to get level using several blocks puts the RV as much as 3' off the ground. There is only 30 amp electric with water located a few sites away. There is one showering bathhouse in the campground and a pit toilet at one end. The large lake is nice for fishing and boating, and there are 3 trails to walk near the lake. Over the air TV is very good as well as phone service. My AT&T data card needed an antenna and amp to get 4 bars of 4G. Very close to Will Rogers Museum (12 miles) and birthplace (3 miles). Rate reflects senior discount. We would stay here again.

A Corps of Engineers park and an excellent place to camp. Most sites are well shaded, paved, and nearly level. The waterfront sites are beautiful. Primary activities besides camping is fishing, boating, swimming, and some hiking. Fishing is usually very good. The park was well maintained. Water for hookup is available but bring plenty of hose and a "Y" connector. The only negative thing is that the raccoons can be a nuisance. GPS Info.
